We have a variety of ways to help you keep up-to-date in your areas of interest, clinical and non-clinical.
Bulletins and Updates
Bulletins are monthly email updates of relevant recent publications. Updates are produced 2-3 times per year and provide a summary of the evidence across broader subject areas. We also send out a daily Health Management bulletin.
To receive any of the Bulletins or Updates directly to your email inbox click the button below and let us know which ones you would like to receive. The latest editions can also be downloaded below.
KnowledgeShare is our targeted current awareness service. We’ll let you know when we find high-impact publications in your area, including guidelines, policy and high-level research evidence. Alerts are emailed out every fortnight. Your KnowledgeShare profile can be created to be as broad or specific as you need, and can be updated if your interests change. For example, you could receive all alerts on obstetrics or limit to only items related to gestational diabetes. KnowledgeShare contains summarised evidence; you will not be inundated with primary research articles.
Set up a Twitter profile and ‘follow’ organisations and individuals with similar interests. Each time they send a ‘tweet’ you will see it on your profile. It is useful for general professional and personal interests.
Follow the Library on Twitter and keep up-to-date with news from the library and relevant health news stories.
Journal database alerts
Create and run an evidence search in one of the databases (e.g. Medline, Cinahl, etc). When you save the search you can create an alert. You will then receive automatic updates to the search results at regular intervals. For complex clinical or professional interests this is a good way to keep your updates very specific.
